We stopped here for Sunday lunch & ordered a roast beef and a mac&cheese. Having checked with the bar staff that the roast beef was served pink - not well done - we were rather surprised when the waiter brought out a Mac&cheese and a burger - a well done burger at that! Not much of an apology was made.... More

Friendly staff, not huge amount of seating - bit quirky, in a good way. Building obviously under development & journey to find toilets interesting! However food was marvellous- had the soup and sharing plate of local ingredients - pate, smoked salmon, Scottish cheeses, meats - too much for 2 of us. Cullen skink was very generous and hearty fare. Also... More

I've been using the Taybank off and on for nearly 30 years, enjoying its position close to the River Tay in the historic town of Dunkeld and with its views to Birnam Hill. I have occasionally eaten there and had many drinks in the pub. My wife and I took a visiting Spanish family (2 adults and 2 children| there... More

I have eaten here many times when in town as my parents live near bye. It has a great location right by the bridge with a beer garden right on the river Tay which is beautiful. You cant eat in the beer garden through (WHY who knows?) The menu is small and the service usually slow but the pub food... More

Great traditional Scottish pub. Friendly staff and homely surroundings. A few nights of the week they have live entertainment and even jamming sessions where people just turn up and get involved in the music. During the summer there is a beer garden with great views of the river Tay.

Well I love Perth shire. Every single spot and that of course includes river tay. The tay bank hotel is in a lovely location by the rivers bank. We visited with our little dog. Though it was a lovely day we preferred to sit inside because it was a bit too warm for us. Our dog was welcome inside too.... More

We stopped here for a few drinks on a Saturday night after a day of activities and a meal at one of Dunkeld's hotels. The service was good and the beer garden was pleasant even in the evening. We sat on an elevated section overlooking the river. Not much else needs to be said.

Sat outside and ordered at bar. Menus were very grubby and put us off for a start but decided to give it a try. Waited about 30 mins for food, not because it was busy but lack of staff. Toasties were large and freshly made. Soup was good. Nice setting and there is plenty outside space. Would eat there again... More

Public house and venue situated on the banks of the river Tay, in Highland Perthshire.

The Taybank changed hands in Summer 2014 and is currently undergoing some much needed, and significant renovation work.
During the renovation, the bar has been open, the kitchen continues to get better and better under the supervision of our fantastic new head chef, and our music sessions play on...
